Foundation: trailer

Epic sci-fi saga based on Isaac Asimov’s trilogy begins in late September.

Apple TV+ today released the full trailer for Foundation, the epic sci-fi saga based on Isaac Asimov’s trilogy of the same name.

The 10 part series from executive producer David S. Goyer stars Jared Harris and Lee Pace, alongside newcomers Lou Llobell and Leah Harvey.

The series chronicles the stories of four crucial individuals transcending space and time as they overcome deadly crises, shifting loyalties, and complicated relationships that will ultimately determine the fate of humanity.

Revealing a deeper look than ever before at the unprecedented adaptation, the trailer invites audiences across the galaxy to embark on a thrilling and emotional journey following a band of exiles who discover that the only way to save the Galactic Empire from destruction is to defy it. Helmed by visionary showrunner and executive producer, David S. Goyer (“Batman Begins,” “Man of Steel”), the first season of “Foundation” will exclusively hit Apple TV+ worldwide on 24 September, 2021 with the first two episodes available, followed by one new episode weekly, every Friday.

When revolutionary Dr. Hari Seldon predicts the impending fall of the Empire, he and a band of loyal followers venture to the far reaches of the galaxy to establish The Foundation in an attempt to rebuild and preserve the future of civilisation. Enraged by Hari’s claims, the ruling Cleons — a long line of emperor clones — fear their unrivaled reign may be weakening as they’re forced to reckon with the potential reality of losing their powerful legacy forever.

The inaugural 10-episode season of “Foundation” is led by showrunner and executive producer David S. Goyer and produced for Apple by Skydance Television with Robyn Asimov, Josh Friedman, Cameron Welsh, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Bill Bost also serving as executive producers.

Three episodes on Friday September 24 then new episodes weekly.

  1. ‘Foundation’ is Screen Ireland’s largest production ever, creating over 500 jobs when it was shot at Troy Studios Limerick.
    Interestingly, The Foundation series of books which debut in 1942 was an influence for Star Wars and Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy.

  2. That looks quite epic. I’m not an Apple subscriber but I’m liking a lot of their content. I suspect i’ll become a subscriber in the not to distant future.
